Activity 2

Learning Target:
1. Count the number of occurrence of an outcome in an experiment through table and tree diagram.


A table of outcomes is a table where the first row and first column represent the possible outcomes in
each event.

When creating a table:

 consider whether the outcomes can be repeated eg when tossing two coins an outcome can be
 consider whether the reverse of the outcomes should be included eg is 1–6 the same as 6–1? For


A die is tossed twice and the results recorded. Use a table to find all the possible outcomes.
 Doubles will be included – you can get the same number on both tosses.

 The reverses are included as 1 on the first toss and 2 on the second toss is different to 2 on the
first toss and 1 on the second toss.
Tree Diagram is used to represent the set of all possible outcomes involving one or more experiments.
This is useful for both independent and dependent probability.

When drawing a tree diagram:

 the first set of branches represents the 1st stage of the experiment.
The number of branches = the number of outcomes.

 the second set of branches represents the 2nd stage of the experiment.
These branches are drawn extending out from the 1st set of branches.
The number of branches = the number of outcomes.


A.) Checking for understanding

Direction: Analyze the given situations below. Construct a table and a tree diagram to solve for the
possible outcomes.

1. Justine has 7 biscuits in a tin of different flavors: 3 plain biscuits, 2 chocolate biscuits, 2 caramel
biscuits. Justine takes at random 2 biscuits from the tin. What is the probability that the two biscuit
are of the same flavor?

2. There are 2 different types of sandwiches in a food container: 3 egg sandwiches and 4 ham
sandwiches. Noureen takes at random 2 of these sandwiches. Work for the probability that Noureen
takes 2 sandwiches of different types.
3. A jar is drawn containing 5 pink marbles and 3 green marbles. What is the probability of drawing a
green marble?

4. Metro Surigao Shopping Center sells hand bags in two color: Brown and Grey. They are available in
3 different sizes: small, medium and large. Show all the possible combinations of the color and size
of the bag using tree diagram.
5. There are 4 red hats, 3 blue hats and 2 black hats in a box. Jean takes at random a hat from the box
and gives it to her brother. Jean takes at random another hat from the box. Find the probability that
both hats are of the same color.

B. Processing Question:

1. Describe how a table of outcome is used in an experiment?

2. What are the procedures/steps in making a tree diagram?
